The class outline
Exactly what’s covered
Here’s exactly what you’ll learn in this class. The class is broken up into 2 modules, design thinking and design execution. I believe sound strategy and process should be merged with a great sense of craft.
How we go from user insight and discovery ☞ to effective design solutions. No bullshit. Just valuable lessons I’ve learnt over the last 10 years helpings brands like Nintendo, Adidas, Target, and Nissan – to help you become more valuable UI/UX designer.

ALUMNI — ERIC SEMLING
Talk as much shit as you want. But it comes down to the quality of the work. Have intentions and strategy. Create change. Solve problems. Merge user insight with business objectives and execute it all stunningly.
We start the classes with theory and lessons that you can easily understand, to build a strong foundation. But the magic is when we put all those simple concepts and ideas together. In a comprehensive Case Study at the end in Module 2. The key is for you to have that "A–ha! Moment" as we go from theory to practical application.
Go through my working files and see how everything is broken down. We use figma in our class which is free to download. But the methods can be used for any modern design tool, like Sketch, XD, Studio etc. The value of the course is in the thinking and theory vs. how to use a design tool. We have 20+ resources and templates for you to use, remix and duplicate. We use Figma, Principle, Whimsical and Invision. Everything will be to assist you, and to give you more confidence with your own design process.
Think holistically about your digital design work, and how it sits in the overall brand experience.
Learn to prototype and bring ideas to life
Learn how to setup Design Systems and component libraries
